This page will contain supplementary material for TAMNUN for RBNI and Physics Department members.

  • New TAMNUN LAMMPS page and TAMNUN OpenGL page.

  • The real homepage is here in Hebrew or here in English on the Computer Center Site. Note that except for the material linked from this page, help files only accessible within the Technion network.

  • Information on SimPhoNy nodes for Adler's group.

  • Read WHY we NEED TAMNUN for the Physics Department.

  • PRESENTATION for TAMNUN opening on 24/7/12 gives more details.

  • Read USAGE notes prepared by Joan Adler for Physics Department students.
  • New Users should open an account via the web interface.

    TAMNUN replaced NANCO. Three courses for TAMNUN users were already given.by SGI. Notes from the preliminary course on computing in a remote LINUX environment are at: http://phycomp.technion.ac.il/~tamnun/linenv. Parts of this are outdated now that TAMNUN has arrived.

    General help files are here on TAMNUN itself, not accessible from outside the Technion network. Help pages for Computational Physics students are: here and these include basic `` getting started'' instructions for both C and FORTRAN and sample files.

    TAMNUN is funded by the Technion, via the Minerva Foundation and RBNI and has been operational since July, 2012.
    TNN/SGI (Silicon Graphics) is the vendor and the original cluster configuration includes 88 compute nodes with 12 Intel cores, which is 1056 cores with 96GB RAM per node, plus a masternode. 4 of the compute nodes have GPUs. MELLANOX infiniband switches with 2:1 blocking connects all nodes. The software includes RedHat LINUX, the PBS queueing system and Intel compilers. A large variety of codes, including MATLAB, fluent, Gaussian, VASP, LAMMPS are installed, with usage subject to license restrictions. Additional private nodes are connected to TAMNUN but use of these by non-owners is limited.

    TAMNUN is a contraction of Technion-Minerva-NANO and also alludes to an oCtoPUS with many CPUs. New users and other interested researchers may join the TAMNUN-L directly by pointing their browser to this link.

    For the moment, until the computer becomes too full, usage will be free for everyone. When the load becomes too large users who are not partial owners will be charged. System and user support is provided by the Technion Division for Computing and Information Systems, with first contact for users being the HPC consultant Ms Yulia Halopovich, hpc-support-l@listserv.technion.ac.il

    Acounts can be opened on TAMNUN by pointing your browser to the registration page if you have a tx or T2 account. Other potential users should contact hpc-support-l@listserv.technion.ac.il.
